EVERYDAY YOUR LOVE IS NEW by Esterlyn

It’s a fight that we’re all gonna have to face
To live a life where we’re nothing apart from grace
Oh Jesus make our will Your very own
We feel the pull of wonder
We wonder everyday
We need Your love to lead us
To show us the way
We sing out, we seek Your face
Pour out Your grace
Everyday Your love is new
Everyday You make me new
We sing out, we sing Your praise
With healed hearts we say
Everyday Your love is new
Everyday You make me new
Forgive us forgive us
From where we have fallen
And fill us, fill us with Your presence
Renew a steadfast spirit Lord within us

SALTWATER HEART by Switchfoot (LIVE)

saltwater heart

I fell in love with this song the moment I heard it. The first few guitar strums immediately caught me. And as the song progressed, the melody and the instruments just got better. All the tracks in Switchfoot’s “Fading West” album were great. But Saltwater Heart is my best pick. Whenever I listen to this track, I am reminded of the freedom that I have in Christ. Even though I’m tired, just listening to Saltwater Heart uplifts me from within and makes me feel that amazing liberty running through my veins. I can’t exactly explain why on earth I have cried listening to this upbeat song. Maybe it’s because it taps a certain longing from deep within my soul that I know only God can reach out to. And once again, I feel as if I’m diving into the vastness of God’s ocean of love, grace, and mercy.

“…We’re on your shore again
I can feel the ocean
I can feel your open arms
That pure emotion
I’m finally free again
By my own explosion
We’re on your shore again
I can feel the ocean…” (Chorus)

YOU HAVE ME by Gungor

Simply relaxing – that’s what this song is. And the best thing about it is that, it puts you into worship. It tells about how God has always been around for us, even and especially when we have kept on wandering away from Him and from His presence. the only rightful response is to tell Him that, “God, You have me – completely.”

“You Have Me”

out on the farthest edge
there in the silence
you were there

My faith was torn to shreds
heart in the balance
but you were there

always faithful
always good
you have still have my
you still have my heart

I thought I had seen the end
everything broken
but you were there

I’ve wandered heaven’s gates
I’ve made my bed in hell
You were there still

You have me
You have my heart completely

This was the theme song of the film “The Encounter.” If you have some spare time (or better spare your time for this one), go and see this film. Great story, great acting, and great music. Be blessed!

“Stars Tipped Over”

Written by: Stephen Petree and Duane Dolieslager

Something happened on the way |When I was going to the place to make amends |I couldn’t make it out between the |black and white and gray |You know I needed a friend  |Tick tock beats like four on the floor |A deafening silence that we |can’t ignore  |A tight tight fit at least for today |I tickle your ears ’cause I am afraid |The stars tipped over, |The sky came closer |Your words like fire, |Shock like lightning |Chemicals captured in flight,|Dissolved in the night  |When the stars tipped over  |Many facets, many diamonds |Come in colors shapes and sizes, oh what a sight |I tried to spit, I tried to shine |Another vain attempt to lie, to make this one right |The quick fix fails like you knew that it would |The bottom |dropped out from where we stood |A fresh fake face, I’ve become a pro |A tight tight grip, but we’re letting go |The stars tipped over, |The sky came closer |Your words like fire, |Shock like lightning |Chemicals captured in flight, |Dissolved in the night |When the stars tipped over |We quickly captures the night |And suddenly paused in mid-flight and fell from an astronomical height |Out of the sky, when the stars tipped over |The stars tipped over, |The sky came closer |Your words |like fire, |Shock like lightning |Chemicals captured in flight, |Dissolved in the night |When the stars tipped over

And oh, just so if you’re interested, here’s the acoustic version of this song. Stripped down, yet beautiful still.

SOMEWHERE ONLY WE KNOW by Keane

SOMEWHERE ONLY WE KNOW by Keane

Well, this song is not really a worship song whatsoever. But  believe that songs don’t have to be “directly gospel” for one person to be caused to worship. I played this song over and over again as I was thinking things over. You familiar with the word “burnout”? Sure you are. Well, I’ve been having that feeling for sometime. I used to think that, as God’s chosen servant, I should never feel this way. But that’s a lie form the enemy. God says it’s okay to not be okay. We could always run to Him if we’re all fully loaded with tiredness, sorrows and fears, for His yoke is easy and His burden is light. During a time like this, I just want to be with my Lord,I just want to run back at the foot of the Cross and cherish my intimate moment with my Maker. Whenever you feel all tired and weary, just run back to the Lord. Ask Him to take you to His secret pace, somewhere only you know….”SOMEWHERE ONLY WE KNOW.”

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute, why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go? So why don’t we go?

Oh, this could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know

Somewhere only we know…
